Libby Stone has lived in Lavender Bay all her life. She loves the little seaside town and has big dreams to turn her father’s greasy old chippy into a dainty teashop – not that she’s told him yet!
Finding love isn’t easy amongst the cluster of coastal houses, but it’s not every day that someone quite as handsome and mysterious as Owen Coburn walks into the local pub.
And as the snowflakes begin to swirl on the promenade, Libby realises she’s falling for him. But Owen has been keeping a secret that could destroy everything…

I give it - 4/5
My review - This is the 3rd book in the Lavender Bay series but, you can read it as a stand-alone. But, it will make you want to read the others asap. This book is just so wonderful that I have already ordered the first two in the series just to be back at Lavender Bay! It was fun and just wonderful and I highly recommend for a Christmassy read with some hot chocolate!
In this book we follow Libby. She works with at a fish and chip shop which is owned by her father who, will be soon retiring and Libby hope the business is passed on to her. She wants to change it and make it into a cute cafe with cakes, sandwiches and patisseries. There isn't anything like this in Lavender Bay and hope to be one of the first bakeries within the place and keep her mothers memory alive with her baking.
Then we meet Owen. A businessman and wants to look at owning a new business but, he also has an ulterior motive in Lavender Bay. He's not having much look and the first time he meets Libby he insults her. But, she is intrigued by him.
Is the feeling mutal? What will happen when secrets are revealed, will romance still be on the table? New beginnings possibly about to happen?
I really enjoyed this book and all of the characters where really interesting and I adored reading about them. I liked reading about them and finding out more about each character and of course, Lavender Bay! It was such a warm, fun read that i just couldn't put it down until I had finished it. I felt I was in Lavender Bay with all of these characters and I didn't want to leave. I am excited to read the other books in this series and find out about more of the characters in this wonderful town. It is warm, cosy feeling story and very festive!
